2018 Recent Vote
Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) sponsored H.R. 6784, the “Manage Our Wolves Act,” which would undermine both the scientific and legal framework of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) by legislatively removing protections for most gray wolves across the continental United States under the ESA and preventing judicial review of these delisting actions. Additionally, H.R. 6784 would codify a 2017 D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decision to delist gray wolves in Wyoming, while at the same time overturning a unanimous decision by the same court that upheld protections for grey wolves in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. On November 16, the House approved H.R. 6784 by a vote of 196-180 (House roll call vote 420). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
